London Photographic Association commissioned Kalectiv to make a pilot film for a proposed series of Photography "Master Class" Films. This was filmed on the 19th and 20th April 2012.
The script for this film was written and presented by Barney Edwards who is a member of the London Photographic Association and a director at Kalectiv. The content of the film covers 'Composition' and in it Barney talks about his work and the importance of Composition.
Barney Edwards began his a career as a photojournalist in London’s Fleet Street - covering the middle east , Europe, Mexico , America and South East Asia. Winning the coveted 'Daily Telegraph - Photographer of the year award.'
Barney then became a successful freelance Advertising photographer working for top British, European and American advertising agencies. Sometimes described as ‘the photographers’ photographer’ - he made a reputation for ‘specialising in not specialising’, producing a huge body of work - from portraits to landscapes, reportage and still life. Winning various Campaign Press Awards - two D&AD Silver Awards - two Golds from The Association of Fashion & Advertising Photographers - a New York One Show Award - a Creative Circle Award - and numerous other mentions - as well as being asked to judge on panels for D&AD and The AFEAP Awards.
The film is going into editing and post production on Monday the 23 April and we are looking forward to publishing it on the LPA movingPictures website in the very near future.
